Today I went to Hobby Lobby to buy something I wanted for the longest time, a wooden mannequin. Their purpose are normally for drawing but I realized that it would help me figure out proportions when I crochet dolls, which will come handy for my next project: another Bowie doll.
I have made Bowie dolls in the past, three of them actually, so you might wonder why make another one? This time, I am taking it to the next level. I am going to reproduce a scene from a photo that was taken during the Ziggy Stardust era. He is sitting on a chair, wearing his famous red boots, and a very glittery outfit.
I am going to use wire and doll joints to make the doll posable, this way I will be able to make him sit in the same position as the photo. I will also make the chair, and set it on a red display. I am also using fabric to make the clothes instead of crocheting them. I found some really cool glittery material that looks similar to his outfit, it will allow me to put my new sewing machine to good use.
I am very excited about this fan art project
